Turks & Caicos
Turks and Caicos’ spectacular white-sand beaches, marine life and unbelievably blue waters are the main attraction of these islands.
Grand Turk is the most popular for sightseeing. Below the water lies one of the world’s largest networks of coral reefs providing exceptional diving and snorkeling. The underwater plateau on which the islands rest drops off steeply, creating wall drops that host a variety of marine life. There are also shipwrecks to explore including the most dramatic wall, off Grand Turk.
Even though most of the country’s lodging, dining, tours, activities, and entertainment can be found on Providenciales – the charm is that it is much more subdued than most Caribbean islands.
The islands remain untouched by commercialism but you can find tropical watercolor beach paintings, locally-woven fabics, leather sandals and seashells at boutiques and shops.
Throughout the Turks and Caicos sunset bathes the sky and sand in orange and pink tones. Grace Bay is one of the popular for romantic sunset beach strolls.
